Yoga makes children happy, healthy and strong!

But if you are a clumsy yak, with wobbly hooves, who has never done yoga before, it can be tricky. Join Yak in her first Happy Panda class and see how she discovers the power and playfulness of yoga.

Eight yoga poses and their benefits are clearly explained and illustrated at the back of the book so young children can easily do them at home or in the classroom.

Yoga is for everyone! Adorable, engaging characters and humorous story draw in young children and get them hooked on yoga, creating healthy mind-body habits to last a lifetime.

Mindfulness and meditation are lots and fun! The story’s humorous, creative visualisation exercises tap into young children’s innate imagination, facilitating a deeper understanding of their emotions and developing confidence and resilience.

Author and experienced children’s yoga teacher Snezana Danilovic and illustrator Sandy Thornton team up to create the Happy Panda Children’s Yoga picture book series of heart-warming stories full of gentle humour, aimed at encouraging even very young children to get hooked on yoga. Parents, teachers and educators don’t need to be experienced yogis – they can learn and enjoy yoga alongside young readers, too!

Yaks Can Do Yoga! is the first book in the series.

My Review
Yaks Can Do Yoga! is an adorable children's book with lovely illustrations. It's a story about trying new things (in this case, yoga) and finding friendship along the way.
Yak is at her first Happy Panda Yoga Class, but she doesn't feel like she's ready (or steady) for yoga. As she tries new poses, Yak wobbles a bit, but soon she discovers that yaks can do yoga. How fun!
This is a sweet, delightful read. Children will love Yak and her new friends from yoga. They're a great bunch of characters and will appeal to kids. 
A wonderful book that children will love and want to read again and again.
5 stars!
